This review is from: Polar F11 Women's Heart Rate Monitor Watch (Pink Fizz) (Sports)
It wasn't until I started using this heart rate monitor that I really started to lose weight. I had been walking for weight loss, but this monitor told me that my regular work out did not raise my heart rate high enough, so I had been under performing. This monitor made me realize that I actually had to start running, or jogging, or biking, or some more vigorous activity. Now, the weight is really falling off! The monitor is acurate and motivating. The OWN ZONE feature measures your progress and adjusts your ideal heart rate zone -- At least I think that's what happens. I have searched online for a tutorial of how to use the functions of this watch/monitor as the manual is a bit limited or not too easy to navigate. I am learning as I go along. Bottom line, though, is that I am really losing FAT by following the program in this watch. Some issues with the chest strap not working properly at times. I would attribute this to soap residue, sweat residue. I try to wash it very often and the problem seems resolved.
